A Message from the Dean 

Hello alumni and friends, 

I'm always delighted when it's time to prepare for the ALS Newsletter because 
it's an opportunity to send a greeting and a heartfelt thank-you to all the loyal 
alumni and friends of the College who contribute to our success. Each of you is 
cordially invited to visit with us on campus — we have so many exciting devel- 
opments we would like to share with you. 

In this issue of the newsletter you'll read about new programs related to our 
core mission: improving the quality of human life. Programs such as the Dis- 
ability Research Institute, the Diversity Research Laboratory in Leisure Studies, 
the Initiative in Aging in Kinesiology, and the latest Speech and Hearing Sci- 
ence research exemplify the faculty and student initiatives that are ensuring that 
the key societal issues affecting all of us remain the focus of the College of 
Applied Life Studies. 

Our service programs continue to make great strides as well. The Motorcycle 
Rider Program in Community Health recently celebrated its 25th year of ser- 
vice, and the Division of Rehabilitation-Education Services has acquired new 
state-of-the-art transportation equipment and hired a full-time coach for its 
legendary wheelchair basketball program. These activities continue to strengthen 
the College's connection to our University, local, and state communities. 

You have made vital contributions to our accomplishments. The over 1,200 
individuals, corporations, and foundations who are being recognized in this 
issue of the newsletter are making a difference in so many lives. Your support is 
important in many ways, from helping us establish new scholarships to attract 
the finest students to helping support the teaching and research efforts crucial 
to the mission of ALS. It is our pleasure to recognize your contributions in this 

As many of you already know, when ALS alumni get together, whether at a Big 
Ten game at Memorial Stadium, at a big bowl game at the Superdome, or on 
campus, the atmosphere is charged with camaraderie. We like keeping in touch 
with you. Please make a note to attend a college event — we'd enjoy seeing you!

Cureton Historical Marker Dedicated 

On November 10, 2001, the University of Illinois and 
the College of Applied Lite Studies dedicated a historical 
marker at the west entrance of Huff Hall to honor the 
late Professor Thomas K. Cureton (1901-1992), the 
founder of one of the worlds first physical fitness research 
laboratories and widely regarded as the "Father of Physi- 
cal Fitness." Nearly 100 former students, colleagues, and 
friends of Dr. Cureton attended the ceremony, which 
began two hours before the Illinois-Penn State football 
game. Those speaking included Dean Tanya Gallagher, 
Mrs. Portia Cureton, and two of Dr. Cureton's former 
students, Dr. Ed Shea and Dr. Sharon Plowman (MS 
'66; PhD 70). 

After the marker was unveiled attendees gathered to 
visit and reminisce and view a video documentary of Dr. 





Mrs. Portia Cureton and Dean Tanya Gallagher unveil 
the marker.

tory. The laboratory continues today to support research 
in critical fitness issues, and each year the Department of 
Kinesiology presents the T.K. Cureton Physical Fitness 
Research Award to an outstanding graduate student. The 
day before the event, Dr. Cureton's son, Dr. Kirk Cureton 
(MS '72; PhD '76), presented a lecture to faculty and 
students of the Department of Kinesiology. The week- 
end was a wonderful tribute to one of our finest scholars.

Motorcycle Rider Program Going Strong After 25 Years 

The flowing curves of the fenders, the piercing reflections 
from perfect chrome, the visual muscle of a big V-Twin 
engine. And, of course, the sound — that heart pounding, 
pavement-thumping sound. The promise of seeing the 
world from the seat of a motorcycle has lured many aging 
baby boomers, finally able to afford that ultimate symbol 

of freedom, to their local 
motorcycle dealer. But 
some of these new riders 
are faced with a problem. 
Even though the nimble, 
polished, raw-boned 
beauty looks great sitting 
in the driveway, it's hard 
to pretend you're the next 
James Dean when the 
only bike you've ever rid- 
den was the old Schwinn 
you had in college. You 
don't know a clutch from 
a kickstand, and the 
thought of actually riding, and possibly wrecking, your 
new expensive vehicle is a bit daunting. What to do? 

John Sudlow has heard this story before. As the direc- 
tor of the Motorcycle Rider Program at the University of 
Illinois, he's helped everyone from high school students 
to retirees learn how to ride motorcycles safely. "And yes," 
he adds, "we've had people who have purchased very ex- 
pensive motorcycles before learning how to ride them. 
But our program helps them, too. We cater to everyone, 
from the beginning rider to the experienced motorcyclist 
who wants to learn advanced skills." 

For over 25 years, the Motorcycle Rider Program has 
been a part of the Department of Community Health at 
the University of Illinois. In the mid 1970s, following a 
motorcycle boom that saw Japanese manufacturers such 
as Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki flood the U.S. 
market with economical cycles, the State of Illinois ap- 
proached the University of Illinois to develop a motor- 
cycle-training program. Previously, motorcycle training 
fell under the domain of driver education teachers, with- 
out much success. "It was a huge bomb," says Sudlow. 
"Driver education teachers often didn't want anything to 
do with motorcycles, and it's hard to blame them. Teach- 
ing someone to ride a motorcycle involves a whole other 
set of skills apart from driving a car." When the accidents 
started adding up, the Illinois Department of Transpor- 
tation (IDOT) decided it needed to try a new approach, 
and established regional motorcycle training centers op- 
erated by selected state universities. In 1976, Dr. Rudolf 
(Rudi) Mortimer, a professor in the Department of Com- 
munity Health, assumed the leadership of the U of I pro- 
gram. Since that time, over 42,000 people have received 

training through the U of I Motorcycle Rider Program, 
and today there is nearly always a waiting list to get into 
the classes. 

The popularity of the program comes as no surprise 
to Sudlow. "We offer Illinois residents free instruction, 
which includes 20 hours of hands-on training, and we 
even supply them with a motorcycle and helmet to train 
with if they don't yet have one. It's the best training you're 
going to get." Another big incentive is that riders who 
pass the course are waived from taking the riding tests at 
the state driver's license facilities. In addition, some in- 
surance companies give breaks to those who successfully 
complete the course. "Those are big incentives, and cer- 
tainly they contribute to the popularity of the program," 
says Sudlow. "In fact, the program is so popular among 
riders that we rely on their word-of-mouth as our best 
form of advertising." 

Of the 46 states that currently offer a motorcycle-train- 
ing program, Illinois is only one of two that provides it 
for free. So how is Illinois able to offer this instruction at 
no cost to the rider? "A portion of the fees collected from 
every motorcycle license renewal is directed back into rider 
education and the Motorcycle Rider Program," explains 
Sudlow. "And because those annual license renewals help 
fund our program, we like to see people actually ride their 
motorcycles, rather than store them in the garage or take 
them out occasionally just to look at them without re- 
newing their plates." 

The mission of the program — to train motorcyclists 
to ride safely and reduce accidents and injuries on Illinois 
roadways — dovetails perfectly with the mission of the 
Department of Community Health. Given the popular- 
ity of the course among motorcycle riders, the program 
will likely continue to grow as a valued part of the Col- 
lege of Applied Life Studies. For more information, con- 
tact the Motorcycle Rider Program at 800-252-3348, or

Students Travel to United Kingdom 

Building upon the benefits ol international travel and 
study, the Department ot Community Health again of- 
fered its course "Health Care Delivery in the United States 
and the United Kingdom — A Comparative Analysis" this 
past May and June. During the period, students and fac- 
ulty traveled to London and York, England and Edinburgh 
and Clasgow, Scotland. 

The course has taken on additional prominence, given 
that health care reform continues to be a matter or public 
concern. During the past decade, health care costs con- 
tinue to rise at a rate well above inflation, while the num- 
ber of uninsured continues to increase. Traditional modes 
of health care delivery are being replaced by a variety of 
emerging plans. Analyzing delivery systems in other in- 
dustrial countries allows students the firsthand opportu- 
nity to observe alternative delivery systems and lessons, 
which may be applicable for the U.S. 

Key areas contrasted between the British and Ameri- 
can systems were cost, accessibility of services, distribu- 
tion of health facilities and personnel, public 
accountability, and health promotion/disease prevention 
strategies. During the course students traveled through- 
out the country, then participated in visitations, which 
included hospitals, clinics, governmental agencies, uni- 
versities, health organizations and professional organiza- 

The course, a 20-day trip that is offered for credit or 
not-for-credit, is offered every two years during the 
intersession period between spring and summer semes- 
ters. Alumni and students are invited to participate. The 
next trip will be offered May 19 through June 9, 2003.

Professor Tom O'Rourke at 217-333-3163.

Course Offers Community-Health Perspective to Medical Ethics 

If you were in the health care field, and a reporter asked 
you to reveal medical information about a man who just 
went on a shooting rampage at a public school, would 
you feel obligated to inform the reporter of the man's 
medical history? 

"Most health care professionals should 
know better than to breach confidentiality in 
that waybut that's exactly what happened recently 
at a news conference following a tragic shooting," 
says Dr. Craig Walls, a visiting assistant professor 
in Community Health. Walls and visiting assistant 
professor Stephen Notaro are team-teaching a course 
this semester that explores these ethical questions, but 
with a new twist. "Introduction to Medical Ethics" takes 
a community-health perspective in introducing students 
to a wide range of issues in modern medical ethics, such 
as end-of-life issues, research ethics, and clinical ethics. 
While other medical ethics courses have sometimes ad- 
dressed these issues, they have not approached the sub- 
ject from the perspective of a person in the health 

planning, health administration, 
or health education fields. Drs. 
Walls and Notaro are sure they 
will have no problem with ma- 
terial. "Open the 
newspaper almost 
everyday and you 
can find examples of 
ethical questions," says 
Walls. "The rapid pace of 
change in clinical practice, 
policy development, and 
health law ensures that we 
have a constant supply of new 
subject matter. Our class will ex- 
plore issues that are particularly 

relevant to students in Community Health and empower 
them with a basic understanding of the forces that shape 
the medical decisions that they will encounter in their

New Developments in Aging Research 

Wojtek Chodzko-Zajko, 
Kinesiology Department 
Head, appeared on the 
November 20, 2001, 
edition of the Today Show 
with Matt Lauer in 
conjunction with his work 
on the National Blueprint 
on Physical Activity and 
Aging. In addition, he was 
featured in a special 
edition of Newsweek 
magazine dedicated to 
aging and activity. 

The Department of Kinesiology is playing a major role 
in a new initiative that will bring together campus schol- 
ars who share a common interest in aging research. 

In June 2001, the Colleges of Agricultural, Consumer 
and Environmental Sciences; Applied Life Studies; Lib- 
eral Arts and Sciences; Medicine; and Veterinary Medi- 
cine jointly committed to 
establishing a campus- 
wide Initiative on Aging 
with the goal of increas- 
ing collaborations in the 
area of aging research, 
education, and outreach. 
The Department of 
Kinesiology has been 
heavily involved in all as- 
pects of the development 
of this new initiative. For 
example, the department 
has taken responsibility 
for developing the pro- 
gram website, which is being hosted by the College of 
Applied Life Studies. In addition, several Kinesiology fac- 

ulty have been invited to speak at the weekly colloquium 
series which has been organized as part of the new pro- 
gram. To learn more about the new developments in ag- 
ing research at Illinois, visit the initiative website at

Bannon Receives Prestigious Award 


Dr. Joe Bannon 

Former Leisure Studies faculty member Dr. Joe Bannon 
has received the Honorable Cornelius Amory Pugsley 
Medal, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the 
promotion and development of public parks in the United 
States. Dr. Bannon's many contributions to the field have 
been made while he has occupied several different roles 
during the course of his career, including educator, con- 
sultant, and book publisher. 

After completing an undergraduate degree at Ithaca 
College and a master's degree at the University of Illinois, 
he assumed the position of Superintendent of Recreation 
in Leonia, New Jersey. In 1963, he became the General 
Superintendent of theTopeka, Kansas, Recreation Com- 

In 1966, Dr. Bannon returned to the University of 
Illinois to become the Chief of the Office of Recreation 
and Park Resources, which was the outreach arm of the 
Department. While in this position, he completed his 
PhD. In 1973 he was appointed head of the Department 
of Leisure Studies. He remained in this leadership posi- 
tion until his retirement from the U of I. 

During his tenure at Illinois he authored or co- 
authored nine books on the subject of management, which 
is his specialty. His initiative and drive led him to co- 
found the Journal of Park and Recreation Administra- 
tion (JPRA) in 1984. JPRA is now in its 19th year of 
publication and is established as one of the field's major 
journals. During the 1 980's and 1 990's there was a move- 

ment away from the park and recreation administration 
option in university departments, and the existence of 
JPRA has been crucial to the retention of that option. 

In 1974 Dr. Bannon founded a consulting company, 
Management Learning Laboratories. The company com- 
pleted master plans, feasibility studies, and market stud- 
ies for many park and recreation agencies across the 
county. In addition, the company arranged seminar and 
workshop programs both in the U.S. and abroad. 

The final phase of Dr. Bannon's career has been as a 
publisher. He is the founder and CEO of two publishing 
companies based in Urbana, Illinois: Sports Publishing, 
Inc. and Sagamore Publishing. Sport Publishing, Inc. fo- 
cuses primarily on sports books for the popular market 
and offers biographies of famous sports figures. Sagamore 
Publishing has published over 1 00 books that address park 
and recreation issues. Sagamore was founded in 1983 at a 
time when the major national publishing houses were 
withdrawing from the parks and recreation field because 
they considered it to be too small to be profitable. 
Sagamore stepped into this void and has been an impor- 
tant resource in providing texts for college curricula and 
disseminating information to professionals in the field. 

Throughout his life, Dr. Bannon has been in the fore- 
front of the parks and recreation field at the national level. 
He has been a forceful advocate for the field in numerous 
forums and has earned widespread respect among his

Department Unveils Two New Websites 

1'hc Department ol Leisure Studies has recently increased 
its online presence by establishing websites devoted to 
two major departmental initiatives. The Diversity Re- 
search Laboratory website, at, 
features profiles of htculty and graduate students affili- 
ated with the laboratory, a description of research projects 
undertaken with the lab, as well as various resources use- 
ful to faculty and graduate students studying issues of 
diversity. The website also contains a collection of recent 
media articles devoted to issues of race and ethnicity, as 
well as a page dedicated to graduate students and poten- 
tial applicants to the program. 

The Illinois Rural Recreation Development Project 
(IRRDP) website, at, is the lat- 
est tool in their efforts to develop recreational and leisure 
services with organizations and individuals in rural com- 
munities. In the past year, the IRRDP has partnered with 
local leisure and recreational organizations in the Illinois 
towns of Farmer City, Tolono, Marshall, Tuscola, 
Newman, Ogden, Abingdon, Hamilton, Bushnell, 
Colchester, and Virginia. The long-range goal of these 

partnerships is to build sustainable services that the local 
organizations can continue on their own. 
The project has been a great success thus 
far, and several rural towns in Illinois are 
now completely self-sustaining after a pe- 
riod of partnership with the IRRDP.

Diversity Research 
Laboratory Established 

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, for the first time 
in Los Angeles (California) history, Anglo-Americans now 
represent the minority of the population. Acknowledg- 
ing the fact that the changing face of America has many 
implications for the design and delivery of health and hu- 
man services, the Department of Leisure Studies has es- 
tablished the Diversity Research Laboratory (DRL) to help 
communities address these emerging issues. 

Specifically, the mission of the DRL is to facilitate, 
produce, and disseminate multidisciplinary research dedi- 
cated to understanding leisure as it relates to the richness 
that diversity brings to community life. Research projects 
conducted within the laboratory explore the relationships 
between ethnicity, race, gender issues, aging, disability, 
lifestyle choices, immigration status, and leisure. "There 
are over 300 colleges and universities in North America 
with degree programs in sport, recreation, and leisure stud- 
ies," stated Dr. Monika Stodolska, assistant professor and 
founder. "It is our goal to become the leader in our field 
in the scholarly study of diversity and in design of leisure 
programs and services to best meet individual and com- 
munity needs."

Yairi Receives Major Grant, Distinguished Alumni Award 

Dr. Ehud Yairi, professor of Speech and Hearing Science, 
has been awarded a $4.3 million grant for his proposal 
entitled Stuttering Subtypes and Associated Risk Factors. 
Scientists from several Midwest universities will partici- 
pate in the project, which is organized into four main 
categories: epidemiology, language function, motor skills, 
and personality factors. Joining Dr. Yairi as principal in- 
vestigators are two fellow University of Illinois faculty 
members, Dr. Ruth Watkins (Associate Dean of the Col- 
lege) and Dr. Nicoline Ambrose. Dr. Watkins will head 
the Language branch, while Dr. Ambrose is in charge of 
the Epidemiology branch. In addition, three alumni from 
the U of I are also on the research team: Dr. Kelly Hall of 
Northern Illinois University, Dr. Rebecca Throneburg 
of Eastern Illinois University, and Dr. Carol Hubbard of 
the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. 

In addition to this major 
grant, Dr. Yairi, whose stut- 
tering research at the U of I 
is internationally recognized, 
was recently named the Dis- 
tinguished Alumnus for 
2001 by the Department of

Congressman Johnson Visits ALS 

United States Congressman Timothy Johnson joined 
Dean Tanya Gallagher for a tour of some of the labs and 
facilities in the College of Applied Life Studies last fall. 
Representative Johnson spent the afternoon meeting with 
faculty and staff in the Department of Speech and Hear- 
ing Science getting familiar with the research initiatives 
underway in the department and seeing firsthand the 
advances in speech and hearing technology that are being 
developed at the University of Illinois. During the two- 
hour visit, Johnson also toured the University of Illinois 
Speech and Hearing Clinic, a public speech and audiol- 
ogy clinic open to the community that also serves as a 
teaching lab for U of I students and a research facility for 
U of I faculty.

Gallagher during his visit to the college last fall. 



Nancy Hager Scholarship 

Jaime Pernios, a masters student in speech-language pa- 
thology, is the first recipient ol the Nancy S. Hager Gradu- 
ate Student Award. This award recognizes a second-year 
graduate student in Speech and Hearing Science and is 
named in memory or Nancy Hager (BS '57), a dedicated 
speech pathologist who helped many children overcome 
speech and language disabilities during a 29-year career 
with the Carbondale (Illinois) School District. Nancys 

Seated l-r: Sara Keim (daughter of Nancy Hager), Jaime Poulos, 
Chester Hager. Standing l-r: Dr. Ron Chambers, Dean Tanya 

husband, Chester, and children, Susan, Scott, and Stewart, 
believed that the most fitting tribute to Nancy would be 
to help students at the U of I who are following in her 
footsteps, and they have established an endowment to 
fund the scholarship, which is awarded to a student who 
shows a strong interest in working in public schools. 

"In doing so, Nancy still plays a part in the University 
and the profession she loved so much," shared Mr. Hager. 
Ms. Poulos's outstanding scholarship earned her the honor 
for 2001, which was presented at an event at the Illini 
Union last November. "We are grateful to Chester Hager 
and the many contributors who made this endowment 
possible," said Dean Tanya Gallagher. "What a wonder- 
ful tribute to this extraordinary person."

Division of 


Member of "Cizz Kids" Makes Gift to DRES 

Kim and Michelle Pollock 

Kim Pollock, a 1971 industrial engineering graduate who 
played on the University of Illinois "Gizz Kids" wheel- 
chair basketball team that won two National Wheelchair 
Basketball Association Championships, and his wife, 
Michelle, have made a gift commitment of $1 million to 
the Division of Rehabilitation-Education Services in the 
College of Applied Life Studies on the Urbana-Champaign 

The Kim C. and Michelle Pollock Endowment Fund 
will support students with disabilities through academic 

and athletic scholarships, 
assistive technology and 
services, and support for 
adaptive varsity athletics. 
"The College of Ap- 
plied Life Studies is com- 
mitted to understanding 
how individuals with dis- 
abilities can achieve full 
inclusion, and to provid- 
ing these opportunities 
for our students at the 
University of Illinois," 
said Tanya Gallagher, 
dean of the College of 
Applied Life Studies. 
"Kim and Michelle Pollocks gift will enable us to reach a 
new level of leadership in the area of disability studies by 
ensuring that future students have access to these cut- 
ting-edge programs and services. Their generous support 
will make an enormous difference in the lives of our stu- 

dents with disabilities, and we are truly grateful." 

Kim Pollock was co-captain of the 1970 champion- 
ship team and was named an Ail-American three years in 
a row. He also played on the USA Wheelchair Team that 
competed in the 1 968 Paralympics in Tel Aviv, where he 
won two silver and one bronze medal in track and field 
events including swimming and decathlon. He also com- 
peted internationally at the Stoke Mandeville games in 
England, Switzerland, and Austria. In Austria, Kim won 
seven gold medals. 

In his senior year, Pollock received the Harold Scharper 
Service Award and was recognized as one of the top 100 
seniors. He received the Harold Scharper Achievement 
Award in 1996. 

Kim's career has been in information processing, ris- 
ing to a senior executive capacity in the consumer prod- 
ucts field and later, the biotech field. He's held key 
information systems positions with Procter & Gamble, 
Playtex International, Centocor, and Amgen. 

Michelle Pollock holds bachelor's and master's degrees 
from the University of Cincinnati. She worked with chil- 
dren with learning disabilities in a career that spanned 
more than 30 years. 

"The experiences and opportunities available to me as 
a disabled student at the U of I were unlike anything avail- 
able anywhere else in the world," said Kim Pollock. "I 
feel very fortunate to have been able to take advantage of 
this tremendous program and now that I am able to, I 
want to help ensure that other students can also benefit 
from this unique opportunity." 

DRES Transportation Service Gets Upgrades 

The accessible campus bus service operated by DRES took 
delivery of three new Amtran buses equipped with cus- 
tom-built lifts fabricated by Mobile Conversions of Bethel, 
Ohio. Each is equipped with air conditioning and a state- 
of-the-art communications system that has greatly im- 
proved the quality and reliability of communication 
between the Division and the operators. 

Additionally, to enhance student safety through im- 
proved communication with DRES bus operators, evening 
and weekend bus drivers were given a cell phone that stu- 
dent riders can call to maintain direct, continuous com- 
munication access. This has greatly improved the ability 
of evening and weekend drivers to more spontaneously 
adjust their routes and schedules to meet the changing 
needs of students and, thus, has also served to substan- 
tially enhance campus safety and security for students with 
disabilities. The staff of the DRES transportation service 

including John Kamradt, supervisor of Facilities and 
Equipment, and Disability Transportation Specialists, Fred 
Divan, Kim Smith, Carolyn Bretzlaff and Rebecca 
Wilsey, are all to be commended for the extraordinary 
job they have done in coordinating the purchase, evalua- 
tion, refinement, and implementation of these transpor- 
tation system changes.

Former DRES Participant Carries Olympic Torch 


EDITOR'S NOTE: This article is reprinted by pennission of Inside 
Ventura Count): The torch passed through Ventura County on January 
16th on its way to the Feb. 8 opening of the Winter Olympics in Salt 
Lake City. Dr. Schick graduated fiom the University of Illinois in 1972. 

Dr. James Schick, medical director of the neonatal intensive care 
unit at St. John's Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, feels honored 
he was chosen to carry the Olympic torch when it comes to Ventura 
County on Jan. 16. 

Schick, 51, will do his running along the streets of Oxnard in his 
wheelchair, a conveyance he's been obliged to use since he was 19. 

"I was attending the University of Wisconsin and working two 
jobs," he said. "While driving my car, I fell asleep, the car rolled and 
my spinal cord was injured. I had been on my way to meet people to 
go rock climbing." 

Schick was nominated to be a torch bearer by his older brother, 
Tom, of Rockville, Md. 

"Because he has accomplished so much, he is an inspiration to all 
of us," said Tom Schick. "That's me, my wife, my four kids and my 
sister and her family." 

Prior to his accident, James Schick had been involved in "a lot of 
sports," one of which was skiing. He was good enough to be a mem- 
ber of the National Ski Patrol in Wisconsin. 

In 1970, as he recovered from his accident and adjusted to his 
new lifestyle, he searched for a university that could accommodate 

"There were no college campuses truly accessible to wheelchairs 
back then, it was before legislation," Schick said. "But then I learned 
about the University of Illinois, which had been accessible to wheel- 
chairs since the 1950s. I understand it was started for G.I.s coming 
back from World War II and Korea with spinal cord injuries." 

Illinois had a rehabilitation education center, buses with lifts, and 
accessible buildings, Schick said. 

Former DRES participant James Schick 
receives the Olympic Torch as it makes its 
way through Ventura County, CA, on 
January 16th 

"If a class you wanted to 
take was in a building with- 
out access, they would move 
the class to an accessible site," 
he said. "They had everything 
for the disabled that we take 
for granted now. But it wasn't 
until 1979 that the law re- 
quiring public buildings to 
accommodate the disabled 
was passed. 

"There was no problem at 
Illinois with the students. 
There were 250 people on 
campus with various disabili- 
ties. You could socialize with everybody' Everyone was treated 

In 1972, Schick received a bachelor's degree in microbiology from 
Illinois and, in 1 976 he received his medical degree from Georgetown 

That same year he came to California to do his residency in pedi- 
atrics and fellowship in neonatology at UC Davis. It was there he 
met his future wife, Marlene Epstein. Their sons are Eric, 20, and 
Evan, 17. 

"I think they're excited about me being in the torch relay," Schick 
said. "I know I'm excited about it. But I don't really have butterflies 
because I don't get too nervous about things. I try to do a good job, 
do the right things. I try to enjoy life." 

Schick feels this Olympic experience is good for local cities and 
for the country. 

"It couldn't have come for the country at a better time," he said. 
"It will help people feel real good about their country and every- 
thing that's going on." 

Frogley Hired as Head Basketball Coach 

The future of the DRES's legendary wheelchair basket- 
ball program was secured this year with the hiring of 
Michael Frogley as the Division's full-time Head Basket- 
ball Coach. As a half-time graduate assistant, Coach 
Frogley led the Illinois men's team to three national colle- 
giate championships in four years, and took the team to 
the Final Four of the National Wheelchair Basketball 
Association Open Division twice — a feat last achieved in 
1970. Mr. Frogley also coached the women's team to two 
second-place finishes in the National Women's Wheel- 
chair Basketball Tournament in the same timeframe. In- 
ternationally, he served as the Head Coach of the Canadian 
Paralympic Men's Wheelchair Basketball Team that won 
the 2000 Paralympic World Championships in Sydney, 

To improve the program's recruiting base, Coach 
Frogley has successfully created a partnership with the 
Illinois High School Association to develop a unique scho- 
lastic wheelchair basketball program in Illinois which can 
serve as a feeder to the Urbana campus program, and he 
has increased participation in the Urbana campus sum- 
mer wheelchair basketball camps for youth with disabili- 
ties from a high of 40 campers to nearly 200. 

In combination with Campus Life Supervisor Maureen 
Gilbert and strength and conditioning and wheelchair 
track coach Marty Morse, the Division's athletic programs 
are clearly poised to further enhance their programmatic 
excellence, leadership, and outreach in the area of adapted 
sports and recreation.

New Scholarship Established in ALS 

The College of Applied Life Studied has established a new 
program to recognize outstanding freshman students. 
Funded by a generous gift from Mary Ellen Wilson Towne, 
the scholarships will be awarded each year to freshman stu- 
dents from the state of Illinois. The revenue from an en- 
dowment established in memory of her late husband, 
Wendell S. Wilson, will be used to recruit the highest-cali- 
ber freshman students, who are referred to as "ALS Schol- 
ars." In addition, the Wilson endowment also provides 
student emergency funds. Congratulations to this year's

Julie and Rainer Martens 

Martens Help Provide the Gift of Knowledge 

As .1 University ol Illinois faculty member in 1974 who specialized 
in sport psychology, Rainer Martens (PhD '68, Kinesiology) needed 
.i company to publish the proceedings or a professional conference 
he had organized. It didn't take long before Rainer and his late wife, 
Marilyn, had the idea of starting 
their own company. Not long af- 
ter, Human Kinetics Publishers, 
Inc. was founded. 

Twenty-eight years later, this 
local publishing company has be- 
come one of the world's leading 
sources of information in the area 
of physical activity. With annual 
sales surpassing $22 million, HK 
publishes a wide range of resources 

ranging from text and consumer books to software and distance edu- 
cation courses. In addition, HK developed the American Sport Edu- 
cation Program, the most widely used coaching education program 
in the U.S. 

"Our objective is to make a positive difference in the quality of 
life of every human being by promoting physical activity through 
information," shared Rainer who serves as the company president. 
"Ultimately, we hope to help people worldwide lead healthier, more 
active lives." 

Marilyn Martens played a vital role in the development of Hu- 
man Kinetics. After her 1991 death, Rainer married Julie Simon 
(PhD, '77, Kinesiology), HK's first employee. Julie serves as Execu- 
tive Vice President. 

For the past 10 years the Martens have been generous supporters 
of the ALS Library at the University of Illinois. Their gifts initially 
paid for a sport database subscription. As the market for HK publi- 
cations continued to expand, both on a national and international 
level, the Martens felt that University of Illinois students would ben- 
efit from having immediate "hot off the press" access to their books. 
Since 1999, Human Kinetics Publishers, Inc. has donated 224 new 
books directly to the ALS Library. 

"HK would not exist without my education from the U of I and 
my tenure as a faculty member," shared Rainer who retired from 
Illinois in 1985 but continues as an adjunct faculty member in the 
Department of Kinesiology. "The U of I Library has been an out- 
standing resource for both of us as well as our company over the 

With the goal of further enhancing its partnership with ALS, 
Human Kinetics now funds a graduate student within the Depart- 
ment of Kinesiology. This support provides students with the unique 
opportunity to be involved with applied research related to physical 
activity and the media. 

"Our gifts to the Univetsity of Illinois allow us to recognize an 
institution that played a major role in both of our lives," shared 
Julie. "It is satisfying for us to know that hundreds of students and 
faculty will benefit from our gift and our choice was to make this 
contribution while we were alive rather than waiting to have it come 
from our estate. We hope other ALS alumni will choose to follow in 
the same manner."
